The following is a message from Kris at the LD SIG at JALT.
Do topics like learner and teacher autonomy, identity, self-regulated learning, and motivation spike your interest? Do you believe in the importance of learner development, and your own development as a teacher, and want the chance to explore this with like-minded colleagues for a year at no cost?
